It doesn't say if he waited to go to the bathroom....it also doesn't say if he had to pee or poo.
I agree with the statement that if one has bowel issues to let the attendants know ahead of time...
Consider the fact that anyone can lie....and on a plane with someone wanting access to the front of the plane....
I don't know what I would have done in a desperate state, but I would have at least told the attendant quietly that I was urgent need and that if I could be accompanied to another bathroom it would be appreciated.
